Bio

The Far Cries - Formed and fronted by Martin Bjorck and Liz Holdforth. The two met at a Music College in London (Martin came to town after a stint as a hotel pianist in Prague, and former ballerina Lizzie abandoned her dead end hometown, Rainham in Kent). They instantly clicked, rented a flat together and it wasnĀ“t long before they started making noise!

At first, with the simple setup of Drum Machine, Synth and Guitar, the pair of them were making a racket at, mainly, electro clubs in London, drawing early inspirations from diverse as The Fall, Suede, Breeders, Crystal Castles, Black Flag, TV On The Radio, Bowie and Devo. But as more and more songs were taking shape they decided to expand their sound, and now call on the talents of Andy Wright (bass) and Chris Morgan (drums). They have been in this formation since 2006.

The band has so far played dates in the UK (headlining various clubnites, and supporting the likes of Hot Chip, British Sea Power, Blood Red Shoes, Field Music), they have played in Germany on several occasions, and also played European Clubnites in Milan, Paris, Berlin, Madrid.

The Far Cries is currently working on their debut album.
